5 Ways to Protect Your Energy Around Negativity
It’s easy to get caught up in the collective vibrations of worry, uncertainty and fear.
We see much of the world through the lens of the media, often showing details above and beyond what we really need to know.
Snapping out of downward spiralling emotions can be tough, especially if we aren’t aware it’s happening.
I’ve written here before about how everything is vibrational energy – including you.
Your mind is a field of energy and the millions of thoughts you have every day are creating emotions which are simultaneously sending out vibrational waves. Your energies and the energies of others are collectively relating to each other every single moment.
If you find yourself feeling anxious, worried and fearful, there are things you can do to prevent yourself from falling into a negative spiral.
5 Ways to Protect Your Energy Around Negativity
1. Reduce Your Exposure to the News
Approach the news from a need-to-know basis. Get the gist of what’s happening without becoming embroiled in it on an emotional level. Don’t be afraid to switch off or walk away. It doesn’t mean you don’t care. Protect your personal vibes so you can be a force of good in the world and not caught up in collective fears.
If your internet browser is set to news as soon as you open a new tab, or you have news flashing up on your phone, change those settings. You honestly don’t need to see the news several times a day.

2. Avoid Contagious Emotions
Your energy field is constantly taking in and putting out vibrations and the low vibrations of others will bring you down if left unchecked.
Practice gentle compassion for how others are feeling, but don’t get sucked in. Try changing the subject and talking about something that everyone can enjoy. Share a funny or inspirational story or ask the negative-feeling person to tell you about something they enjoy. It’ll help shift their focus away from whatever it is that they are complaining about and will help you to better manage the experience.
3. Bach Flower Remedies
Bach Remedy ‘Walnut’ is the natural flower remedy for protection from outside influences. Not only is it excellent for dealing with major changes, such as a new baby in the house, starting school, moving or changing job, but it’s also a powerful vibe protector. Take a few drops in water and sip at intervals, or put some directly on the tongue for immediate assistance if you are spending time around low vibration people.
Another recommended Bach Remedy is ‘Red Chestnut’. This one’s ideal for people who feel fear or great concern for the welfare of others. They may even lose sleep and develop symptoms of stress due to worrying about someone they love. This one works to bring peace to a fearful mind and put things into perspective.
I have written previously about Bach Flower Remedies here.
4. Essential Oils
doTERRA essential oil On Guard has a combination of oils to shield against bacteria and viruses and strengthen the immune system. On Guard extends beyond the physical level and helps with emotions around feeling vulnerable or needing personal protection and healthy boundaries. On Guard comes inside of doTERRA cleaning products too, so you can use it all over your house and get the emotional and physical benefits as you clean. Use the oil in a diffuser or add a few drops to a spray bottle and mist it. You can also dilute it in a carrier oil like coconut oil and apply it over your chest or throat.
Other recommended doTERRA oils for lifting your emotions are Tangerine (lifts dark moods and promotes optimism and joy), Wild Orange (to let go of fear and bring about a sense of humour and playfulness), and Cilantro (encourages detachment from toxic worries).
5. Activate Your Invisible Protective Bubble
Imagine you are guarded by an imaginary bubble of positive light and love. Nothing can penetrate. You are well protected inside and all negative vibes will bounce off. There are meditations in the free Insight Timer meditation app to help with this, as well as hundreds to choose from around releasing anxiety, worry and fear. Close your eyes and press play on any of them as you breath and bring yourself out of future projecting and into the present moment. Trust that all that all is well and you and your loved ones are safe and protected.
Studies have shown that increased levels of anxiety and stress can weaken our immune systems. If you have succumbed to low vibes, try out EFT Tapping. The free Tapping Solution app has a specific meditation to support you in releasing any anxieties around the Coronavirus and the news surrounding it. Download the Tapping Solution app and use the search bar to find this specific Coronavirus meditation.
Be aware of your own personal vibes and gently notice the vibes of others. Don’t judge anyone’s vibes as ‘good’ or ‘bad’ – try to stay neutral and in the mindset of being responsible for your own energy.
The more consistently you are in a high vibrational frequency, the more you will either naturally repel low vibrations or even positively influence them with your own. This is not to be done as a deliberate act by trying to control anyone. Understand that you create your reality, and that every other person creates their reality. Everyone has an opportunity to wake up any time when they’re ready.
